I really like Secunia PSI. It can be found here:

http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/

It will scan your computer and let you know what software is outdated and usually provides a link you can click on to update it. Also, don't forget about setting Windows updates to automatically download and install updates for you. (click on Automatic Updates in the control panel)

Why do I keep getting Network Error 202?


Check the date and time of your computer. Incorrect date has a negative impact on the validity of the certificates for certain websites (for example google.com).

Virus Protection


I have observed that no Anti-Virus software gives you complete protection. Whether its from big known companies like : Norton, McAfee, AVG etc. To Keep your computer safe, try not to click on any unknown advertisements or links on the websites. Keep your Anti-Virus softwares up to date. In case, if your computer is infected than try to use malwarebytes and update it before scanning your computer. Remove all the infections and quarantine items on the software and restart your computer. It will be free from viruses.

Trying to cue sond in player keep getting invalid floating point operation


This is caused due to PCDJ putting in a "kill date." To get around this, back date the year on your computer. This will open it up again. The only problem is if you use your computer for other things. Some computers will correct the date if you go onto the internet. My DJ computer is used only for performing events, so I don't have to worry about the date.

By the way: this is why I will never by from PCDJ again!

My computer keeps freezing up... Error message


Sounds like you have been infected with malware.
make sure your anti-virus software is working and up to date.
You may need to purchase and run software to remove the infection
Ad-Aware is a good product for that
SpyBot Search and Destroy is another

Computer keeps saying that a recent hardware or software change might be the cause tried everything


Set your notebook to be restored to an earlier date with the installed software.
So choose to open the control panel , click on BACKUP/RESTORE , open the settings and choose the set up date and click to restore.
If there is no response after the restoration , then you will need to reinstall the OS.
Clear your PC of any virus /malwares with a virus scan.

I tryed to download my printer software and now my computer keeps shutting down evertime i try to open up a program


Boot into safe mode (Keep hitting F8 until the boot option comes up)
In safe mode go to Start, Programs, Accessories System tools
Select System Restore
Pick a date before you loaded the printer driver software
The computer should be fine now but without the printer driver
Find a printer driver from the manufacturer that matches your model and operating system
Install the printer driver
Hope this helps

Keeping dates on the photo


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.
